It is great pleasure that Pollisree is going smoothly by run its different activities. We passed a hazardous time during COVID-19 pandemic situation and well backing to normal. We lost huge friends, colleagues and natives in COVID period and are praying to God of all lost souls for peace. A large number of peoples lost their jobs and income sources due to COVID-19 which are outgrowing by our integrated efforts. We have overcome the unexpected hazard, but need to alert yet now with our combined determinations. It is true that whole world changed by COVID impact which affected in social, political and financial crisis for a long time. Beside this, impact of climate change now our major challenges which noticeable to globally as well as in Bangladesh by different climate shock or natural disaster.
A lot of serial activities yet now are continuing in Pollisree field. There are 03 projects had phase-out in this pandemic time where organization was unable to continue some staffs due to fund crisis of national/international donors. Pollisree eyes now in own income generating program to considering upcoming challenges and threats. We know that we have needed to face more challenges in future.

It has needed to protect adversities to reach our destination which total roles and responsibilities can be taken by development organization. Hope, we will reach our milestone/destination by our join effective effort.
